* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', the [[ElementalPowers Logia]] [[PowerUpFood Devil Fruit]] users are essentially this. this, since the ability to become their element is one of the three main attributes granted to them with Logia Devil Fruits. Their elemental forms can be turned on or off, and they can either transform partially or their entire body. However, most experienced users will have the ability to transform instantaneously by reflex, with one character even doing so while asleep. Interestingly, their outward appearances remain the same even when in elemental form (though they can change this if they wish, as illustrated with Enel's Amaru transformation). When attacked, their bodies disperse into their element, allowing most physical assaults to pass harmlessly through them.them (given the fact that their outward appearances give no hints of having a Logia power, many enemies learn this the hard way).

* The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse tie-in series ''Series/TheAgentsOfSHIELD'' features the aforementioned Absorbing Man, Carl Creel. Here, he gets an intelligence upgrade, being capable of ploys like shifting his body makeup for stealth, most notably when he escapes from custody by absorbing the transparent bullet-proof plastic of his cell, making him effectively invisible, and allowing him to jump a guard who foolishly looks inside to see how he escaped.

* In ''KameoElementsOfPower'', several of Kameo's elemental warrior forms fall under this trope, most notably Rubble (a pile of sentient magnetic rocks) and 40 Below (an ice-man).
* In ''SuperMarioBros. 3'' and ''SuperMario3DLand'' Mario could turn into a statue with the Tanooki suit. It turned him invincible, and he could kill nearly anything by falling on it.

* The MarvelUniverse villain Carl, "Crusher" Creel, also known as the Absorbing Man, is a variant; he usually can't directly shapeshift, but he ''can'' change his makeup into other materials by touching them -- for example, touch stone and he can become a man of living stone. Fortunately, he's usually A: DumbMuscle, and B: going up against foes with SuperStrength.
